Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday that the European Union would not be a global player without his country’s help as he prepared for his first visit to the bloc this year. On Saturday, he will join celebrations for the 1,000th anniversary of the Russian presence at the ancient monastic community of Mount Athos in northern Greece, one of Orthodox Christianity’s holiest sites. Putin was last in Europe for a bilateral visit in June, when he held talks in Rome with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and Pope Francis.
Such events alarm many in the prophecy community, especially that Putin is due to meet Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos and Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in Athens on Friday who many claim is the Antichrist. So lately we hear the Pope, Putin, Tsipras, Mount Athos … all getting together … these are keywords for end times enthusiasts. Is Putin wringing the bell that the end is near?
Putin and Tsipras will also unveil the famous icon by Andrei Rublev, the Ascension, which is on loan from the Tretyakov Gallery to the Byzantine and Christian Museum.
“We believe our relations with the EU do not face any problems that we cannot solve. To get back to a multifaceted partnership, the deficient approach of one-sided relationships should be abandoned. There should be true respect for each other’s opinions and interests.”
Greece and Russia will sign a “number of bilateral agreements,” the Kremlin said.
EU-Russia relations are at a low ebb over the conflict in Ukraine that broke out in 2014, with European sanctions still in force against Moscow.
The sanctions on Russia’s banking, defence and energy sectors expire in July. Extending them will require a unanimous vote, and EU leaders are expected to discuss the issue next month.
HOW DOES THAT PLAY IN PROPHECY?
Answer: nothing. It is more of a good news rather than bad news. We hope that Europe and Russia’s wounds heal soon. We pray for the America-Russia relations to heel as well. Putin will get along with Donald Trump whom all these false-prophets failed to see a Trump victory (we predicted it before he even ran). Here, watch the false prophets:
Many whom I term as spiritual cripples panic when they see such headlines, especially that Tsipras and Putin are meeting. Add the pope or some holy mountain in the mix and alarm bells go off. I perused a pastor Mike Taylor who renders such events as a sign that the end is near. He writes:
“He [Tsipras] has made alliances with both ends of the spectrum. Vladimir Putin and Pope Francis, the possible Gog of the Gog-Magog alliance, and the possible False Prophet, in that order. Pretty cozy, I’d say.”
The spiritually crippled think that because Tsipras is atheist, he fits the Antichrist bill. God forbid we find a “mount Athos” and a “Vatican” connection, trumpets made of rams horns will begin to sound from someone claiming to be the only true and holy temple.
The problem with the prophetically crippled is that they do not use the crutch that is in front of their eyes. The so-called pastor even includes the verse that refutes his own analogy:
“But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not …Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory”
The cripples will simply ignore all this and say in bold:
“His name is Alexis Tsipras, and it seems that he meets much of the criteria of the prophesied Antichrist. He was just elected as the Prime Minister of Greece. He is an atheist and a far left winger.”
Forget that the Antichrist places an abomination on the “wing of the temple” as a sign, we now need to focus on “left wingers” instead. And where did the text anywhere say “Antichrist is an atheist” especially when Daniel says he’s not. Antichrist worships and advances through warfare “a god whom his fathers knew not” “a strange god whom he [Antichrist] shall acknowledge and increase with glory“.
This is no atheist. In reality, cripples use the Bible for the exact opposite reason of what the Bible came to do. While Putin meeting with Tsipras or the pope is a sign to the cripple that Antichrist is within sight, reality is that such announcements are a sign that a cripple is within sight.
Lets get one thing straight about spiritual cripples. They are not simply in error. These have a form of godliness where they insist that they love the Bible when in reality “they deny the power thereof” by deliberately ignoring the text and focus only on what they want the text to say. The spiritual war within Christendom is between two groups, one that follows an interpretation while claiming they follow only the text, the other group follows the text based on a traditional interpretation passed down for two millennia.
Secondly, the cripples do not use the Bible to spread the truth as they claim. What truth is this when someone uses the Bible to slander Putin, the Pope, Tsipras and hundreds of men before them.
Mikhail Gorbachev, Henry Kissinger, Ronald Reagan, Pope Benedict XVI and countless others were accused of being the Antichrist. Yet the cripples think nothing of it even after when their slanders are proven false. They do not repent.
The text is really meaningless to the cripple. They said that Ronald Reagan was “antichrist”. Why? Ronald Wilson Reagan has six letters in each name which spells out according to them 666. Some cripples even said that “…. its feet were like a bear’s ….” refers to the state animal of Reagan’s adopted home state of California. Books about Mikhail Gorbachev were slanderous yet they hit the shelves at the height of his power declaring him to be the Antichrist.
So if someone wants to reform Russia away from communism it makes them Gog? Now Putin is “Gog”.
This despite that the success rate of naming who the Antichrist is has been 100% false.
Juan Carlos I of Spain was argued by many to be the Antichrist since the 11th kingdom to join the revived Roman Empire since Spain was the 11th nation to join the European Union Juan was accused of being the Antichrist.
There has been claims of Antichrist sightings ever since there were multilateral talks between Israel, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, and the Palestinians. Spain had the 1991 Madrid Conference and it was claimed to be Antichrist’s false peace treaty. Cripples love numerology. Juan Carlos’s name in Hebrew, Greek, Latin, English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French, German, and Russian are said to equal 666.
Javier Solana who was Foreign Minister for the Felipe Gonzalez governments was accused of being the Antichrist.
Even Jesus Christ Himself is accused of being the Antichrist. One messianic Jewish cult called the Sabbath Covenant used scriptural proof that since “the Beast” will rise from the sea” and that since this beast is marked with the Greek letters chi, xi, and sigma, this corresponds with an ancient Christogram used to symbolize Jesus. They say that John saw the symbol of Jesus as the false messiah set up by a Babylonian sub-worshiping cult that took over the Catholic Church.
In reality it is these cripples who are Antichrist. Taking out verses or including an interpretation of verses to say what the verse doesn’t say is the signature of the cripple. Imagine if we take a letter or two from the word “Bible”.
To put it simply, the cripple uses the Bible to spread his bile.
This is no small issue. It has eternal repercussions on the soul of the cripple.
